The holiday weekend is here!

But we're not taking a break because it's Touchdown Friday Night … Our crews are out at 11 games all across Kentuckiana, so watch for what we found in your hometown when you join us for WAVE 3 News at 11!

We've got much more than football for you tonight as well (even though I think I heard something about a big game this weekend … don't worry, we've got you covered there as well.)

WAVE 3's Katie Bauer has a pretty interesting story tonight about a city employee in Southern Indiana who police now say was dealing drugs out of his taxpayer-paid-for vehicle.  She'll tell you how he was busted.

Two Breckinridge county inmates are on the run tonight.  We've already told you about R.J. Waddell, who deputies say made a break for it overnight.  Tonight, we'll let you know how another man walked out of custody.

Plus, a New York City fire truck that survived 9/11 but lost most of its crew broke down nearby … but Kentuckians were not about to leave it stranded.  We'll tell you how they went the extra mile, so the truck could keep rolling.

We'll see you at 11:00 after Dateline NBC!
